    Recruitment of high-quality teaching staff presents a significant challenge for schools in Hampshire, as it does nationally. Our new subject knowledge enhancement course is for non-specialists, across all core and EBacc subjects, as well as RE.

    This training will:

    • Support those recently in post, as well as provide preparation support for those who may be taking up a new post in September 2024.
    • Equip teachers with the knowledge and skills required to effectively deliver high-quality lessons in the chosen subject.
    • Focus on Key Stage 3 teaching principally, whilst offering the requisite level of skill and knowledge to facilitate further development towards the teaching of Key Stage 4 over time.

    Book your place on the Summer 23-24 Primary RE Network

    by Hannah Richardson -

    These sessions are designed to enable RE managers to explore, share and develop good practice in RE in their schools. The sessions will focus on helping other staff to understand the cycle of enquiry, know the range of concepts in the Living Difference IV syllabus, create and amend planning for RE, and help understand assessment issues across the school. 

    Sessions will cover issues according to the needs of the participants, such as: 

    • Supporting other staff in school – what is Hampshire RE using Living Difference IV about? 
    • Developing schemes of work for RE within a developing, integrated curriculum using the golden threads and an understanding of Abrahamic and Dharmic religions. 
    • RE through cross curricular learning. 
    • Developing thinking skills in RE, assessing RE and RE's contribution to pupils' SMSC development. 

    Applicants are expected to attend one meeting each term for one academic year. It is useful if delegates bring their own planning and RE work to the sessions. The meetings will be held within a local primary phase school. The host school will receive one free place at the meetings. 

    Available dates:

    29 April 2024 – Virtual 
    30 April 2024 – Aldershot
    1 May 2024 – Gosport
